In a post about the 2009 ATP schedule I neglected to make reference to a new tournament added to the list of events that will take place January 4th. -11th. in Brisbane, Queensland as the innaugarul of the new Rafter Arena complex. This event has already drawn a number of top players from both the Mens and Womens rosters, and because of its timing is serving as a warm-up event for the Australian Open. An interesting addition to the men’s doubles draw will be the debut at an ATP event of the Djokovic brothers. Seventeen year old Marko will join his brother Novak in the doubles competition. Marko did earn a wild card entry into the Thailand Open earlier in the year where he lost 6-2,6-0 to Jarko Nieminen. Other men who have opted to play in Brisbane are Tsonga, Bahgdatis, Monfils, Gasquet and Fish, and on the lady’s side are Ana Ivanovic and Daniella Hantuchova in the singles competition, and in the doubles the number 1 pair of Cara Black and Liezel Huber.
